Great Gray Owl!!!

I first heard about a Great Gray Owl being in the area here.  A full week later (today, December 30, 2011), I finally got a chance to try to see him for myself and was ecstatic to find he was still there!  These aren't the greatest pictures I have seen of this owl, but they are my pictures, and I couldn't be happier!  This is the first owl I have seen in the wild!  A lifer for me :) 

My first picture of the Great Gray :)

Isn't he beautiful?

Not sure if he caught anything...

Flew to a tree a little way off...

Taking off toward the woods at the back of the field..

Not the clearest picture, but love his wings!
 Once he went into the woods, I waited around for a bit, hoping he would come back, but he didn' least not yet!  He totally made my day :)

    Where is he? I was out that way today but haven't got a clue where I'm supposed to be looking.
